School Spirit: Red Ribbon Week











My daughter school is doing the Red Ribbon Week for Drugs. This is to get in the spirit of saying no to Drugs. Today Wednesday she needed to wear some silly socks, so I decided to make my own silly socks. I use the Hello Kitty Greetings and cut out Heart and Sun at 1 3/4" using the Reynolds Freezer Paper as a template. I used fabric paint colors they are red, black and glittery rose/pink. I was not able to figure out how to use welded words in the freezer paper as template, so I hand written the words out. I also use the I-rock tool to bling the eyes for the heart and sun face.

Kids Craft: Halloween Monsters Wreath

This has been my favorite cartridge Mini Monsters. It makes the layering easy. I use wood sticks or popsicle sticks, Hot Glue to put together the shape of a hexagon. Cut out 2" of spider web using the pumpkin carving and DS to do the title in a rectangle shape instead of a square. I just attach orange ribbon in the back to hang in a door..

Friday's Cook-Out Recipe Book (Weinberg Elementary)

I made 28 mini recipe books for my daughters class this year. One of my daughter's classmate parents volunteer to do the cook out every friday. They would make french toast with bananas, smores, mud pudding, etc. I made all these books including the insert out of cereal boxes. I had the teacher ask the parents to donate empty boxes to the class. The teacher donated the pattern paper that I use for the inserts and tabs and rest I donated. I use for the title the Mickey Mouse Font and DS to weld the letters together. I also use the paper dolls #1 and #2 for the girl and boy chef clothing. The face was stamp from peachykeens everyday faces 4".

I use From the Kitchen cartridge to cut out the inserts and tabs. Also the titles of each tabs were beverages, dessert, breakfast, appetizers. Some of the inserts I use Design Studio to weld the title on the side but I had trouble with my cricut and cereal boxes, so at the end I welded the letters and cut out on solid cardstock or use stamps for the title. The recipe card were type on the Avery templates on the computer. Some embellishments like the marshmellows and chocolate and tea cup were done with George and basic Cartridge my own creations..

Cake Pop Treats

I finally wanted to try and make these cake pop. You can purchase this book either at amazon here is the link http://www.amazon.com/Cake-Pops-pb-ebook/dp/B0041VXGRS/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1286569746&sr=1-1. They are easy to make and the flavor I got from these are like the Animal Cookies with the sprinkles on it when you use the melting candies from wilton, here is the link http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=3E310A5F-475A-BAC0-513EBB4AAC195A7E&fid=3E32DFEA-475A-BAC0-51B68534387FF8B9

I melted some chocolate and roll each ball in there using a spoon. After the cake ball is cover with chocolate get some containers fill them with sprinkle candies of any kind and roll cake balls to be cover with candy and put them back in the cookie sheet pan and place them in the refrigerator for the chocolate to be harden. This is the finish product and they are yummy.... the velvet cake taste great with the semi-sweet chocolate...

The top picture here is when I use the cake crumbs and frosty together (mix it up) and roll it up as a ball and place them in a cookie sheet pan and put them in the refrigerator to set them.




I use the cupcake wrapper Cricut Lite Cartridge to make a witch wrapper 2 1/2". The solid paper is from wasabi shinny purple and the pattern one is from K&company spookatcular. The tag is from the Pumpkin Carving solution cartridge at 2" and put the cake pop in cello bags..
